Mastering the top 100 Sight Words gives early readers a big boost. These 100 words make up nearly 50% of all literature, yet they require the most effort to learn. Phonics, even picture flash cards can't help teach words like "the". Give your early reader improved fluency and confidence. With Spell 1st, your child will learn independently with talking animals in a cute baby's fort, under the kitchen table. The silly pet dog will enunciate each word in a clear, recorded voice. Watch the animal coaches use amusing facial expressions to coax your child to spell "to", "the", "is" and 97 others. Listen to your child giggle when the 10 animal coaches praise him or her by name. Even children new to the computer will be practicing in minutes, eager to score more points. Minimal to no adult assistance or "nudging" is needed. Learning independently is a win-win for you and your child.
